Yep. Smile A bit low, but a good start.

I think this is the first time I've heard the belt described as easy. Laughing


Ahaha 😁 it seems easy to, the hardest part for me ia defenitly the dress


Looking great!

You are not alone on the belt, I found that the easier and the more fun part. If I could just get my mind tricked into thinking sewing is no more difficult than working leather, or on 'hard' costume pieces, this would be a cake walk!

Trial and error tip if you need it!: If you run into trouble sewing up the fabric, you may find a serger will work beautifully. I used JoAnn jetset polyester for my dress and tried three sewing machines, multiple needles and settings with my friend before we ran the fabric through her serger. It was too stretchy and the needles just bounced and skipped.


Thanks for the tips 😁

My aunt will help me with the dress she's a seamstress so She will know what to do with the fabric.

Thank you. It's good to know that i'm on the right track

Yeap, after i put them on, i compared to a photo of Carrie and noticed that they were too low.

I'll have to put them on with a photo by my side to put them correctly

Your buns and belt look awesome!!!

If your aunt has a walking foot for her sewing machine, I HIGHLY recommned she try it on your fabric! I went from abhoring knits (even on my serger) to loving them!
